Broadway News Makers 2010 #8: The "It Gets Better" Campaign
Institutions like the Trevor Project became overwhelmed by the publicity and subsequent public outcry. Thousands of LGBT youth reported similar brutality and sought help before making that final, fatal decision. Click HERE for more information about the Trevor Project.
No stranger to the gay community, Broadway led the charge in creating public service announcements, featuring out and supportive actors, writers, directors and all varieties of theatre personnel. The national campaign blossomed into "It Gets Better." And, naturally, Broadway even created a new anthem and music video for the cause.
